How about the Rolex Air King?

Speaking of Rolex, many people will think of Submariner, Jinlao, etc., of course, here mainly refers to the gold labor dd, dj and other related watches. However, these watches are in fact valuable, the domestic public price is basically sixty-seven million, compared to some other luxury watches, which is relatively expensive. So Rolex in the end there is no relatively cheap watches it? Of course, this is some of my friends are not familiar with the Air King series, the Chinese name air Pa series. Today, and we tell you about Rolex air Pa series.

The origin of Rolex Air King series name

Whether the English name air king, or the Chinese name “air hegemony”, we can see the meaning of a winner. See these also to understand the basic source of the history of the Air Pa series, it is Rolex to commemorate the British in the Second World War in the British air combat in particular to create victory. Thus, although Rolex’s founder Mr. Wilsdorf is a German, but still on the German fascist regime was very opposed, or Rolex’s first birthplace of the United Kingdom is still full of feelings.

After the advent of this series, the price of the basic table is the cheapest Rolex watches, and in a sense, but also just to fill in the past, the cheapest Rolex watches and Rolex second-tier brand Tudor still exists between a Price “divide”. However, from the actual understanding of the situation, the watch money in a period of time has been relatively “unknown”, unlike other watches or Tudor as well known.

Rolex watch exhibition in Basel, launched a new series of air Pa watch

In the retro blowing this year’s Basel Watch Fair, Rolex is a major attraction to re-launch the air Pa series of watches. The new watch, the main change is the one hand, the table diameter increased to 40 mm, more in line with the size of modern wrist, on the other hand movement has also been certified by the Observatory, also worth mentioning is that Rolex logo green, gold Of the combination of the first use of Rolex, at the same time, especially conspicuous Mercedes-Benz needle is also used. Here, probably can understand why the previous air Pa series is relatively cheap an important reason, because at that time a lot of air-baodiao did not take the Observatory certification. In addition, the air Pa watches are often relatively simple, generally do not have the date display and other functions.
